We’re excited to announce our next Continuing Lesson Series with Jocelyn Bender, now on Tuesday evenings!

Jocelyn is an All-Star level West Coast Swing dancer who loves to perform and inspire. Her passion for partner dancing began at an early age, taking lessons in Swing, Country, and Latin styles since the age of 12. She is a current competitor in the national West Coast Swing circuit and her love of dance has led her to become an instructor. She has trained at May I Have This Dance studio in Chicago and has taught workshops at local dances in Madison, Milwaukee, and Chicago. Jocelyn loves spreading her passion for West Coast Swing to her students and bringing a fun atmosphere to her classes.
